I may get a MSI 790FX-GD70, since its said to be a great board for a p2 955be.
But i also read that in january 2010 the new amd chipset will come out (the 800 series).
will it be worth the wait?

It will be easier to answer your question after the launch in April 2010. http://vr-zone.com/articles/amd-800-series-chipsets-launch-schedule/7577.html?doc=7577

chipsets make tiny incremental improvements if any .
what different models add is support for more peripherals [ ie usb etc ] and different processors that are available

yeah i figured as much.. just wanted to get the most up to date stuff, you know..
but the time line for the new chipset is way too off. and i need it for work, so it is an actual need!

if it was for USB 3.0, id say go buy a PCIe USB 3.0 card instead. go buy your mobo!
